It actually looks much worse than it really is. As long as the neck is OK and the tabli (face) are ok,  it can be fixed.

Thanks David.  The neck is straight, the joint is strong, and the rest of the instrument is in good shape.  I started repairs over last weekend and should be done with the gourd soon.  Will post photos when done.

Hi Nick -- It's in my little shop here in the US.

Thanks.

Great stuff - as long as the 'wooden' bits are fine, a toomba can be rebuilt !!!
Have done it more than a few times myself ?!?!?!

i just did this repair for the first time some take aways...
start with the leaves first
glue and tape small pieces into bigger ones
work in a circular fashion if u can
do it all in one session while the glues isnt dried
use titebond 3 and scotch packing tape
your final piece should be geometrically simple to pop into its hole

leave tape on the whole thing at least overnight for glue to dry

No badge.  Nice open-back peg box with carved lion head stock.  Big instrument.  Pretty flat tabli.  Tabli taps average or maybe on the thin side of average.  Structurally good.  Brass langot.  Traditional grommets.  The usual issues:  a missing tarab post, a couple of missing frets, small cosmetic things here and there.  Spiral pegs -- all present and original.  Jawari looks to be original -- bone or stag horn.  Should be done in the next day or so.
